Hilo Shore Excursions

Volcano National Park

Volcano National Park

Kilauea is amongst the world's most active volcanoes, and has been erupting continuously since 1983. Visit Volcano National Park to see the dramatic views of Kilauea Caldera from the Crater Rim Drive. Investigate huge lava rock flows, sulfur vents and lava beds. Volcano National Park is about 30 miles south west from Hilo, along route 11, and the easiest way is to get there is take a ships excursion or a private tour. Alternatively visit Kaimu on the Puna coast - lava erupting from Kilauea’s cone flows downwards 10km to finally tumble and hiss into the sea at Kaimu, making this an excellent alternative lava-viewing trip.


Liliuokalani Park and Gardens

Liliuokalani Park and Gardens

Hilo has the nickname ‘City of Parks’, as several areas of the city are considered at too high risk from tsunamis for the establishment of permanent buildings. Liliuokalani Park is a favorite for many, a pretty Japanese themed garden on the Hilo bay waterfront. See huge banyan trees, pagodas, Japanese lanterns and carp ponds. The gardens are just half-a-mile west of the cruise port.


Mokuola (Coconut Island)

Mokuola (Coconut Island)

A small footbridge links Liliuokalani Park to pretty Coconut Island Park, an ideal spot for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing.


Waiakea Tsunami Memorial Clock

Waiakea Tsunami Memorial Clock

A short walk away from Liliuokalani Park is the Waiakea Tsunami Memorial Clock (or Hilo clock), frozen in time by the great Tsunami of 1960. You can find more details about this terrifying event at the Pacific Tsunami museum in downtown Hilo.


Lyman Museum

Lyman Museum

New England Puritan missionaries David and Sarah Lyman built a mission house at Hilo in 1839, and started work converting the native population to the Christian faith. Today the Mission house and adjacent Lyman Museum provide a fascinating insight into those turbulent years.
